Supervisors review 50-acre development

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Supervisors on Wednesday got their first look at a 50-acre development proposed off Washington Township Boulevard.

Two hundred and eighteen homes have been shown on plans for the Sam Martin tract near the Martin's Ridge development. Representatives of the developer said they have tried to incorporate walking paths and open space, while creating a village-type community adjacent to an 11-acre commercial tract.

"The goal is to create a real unique development with a sense of community," Bobby Schefter said.

He was asked to go before the Washington Township Planning Commission at its meeting in two weeks.

PennDOT wants crosswalk moved

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has rejected several recommendations to improve pedestrian safety near the Blue Ridge Summit (Pa.) Library.

Instead, PennDOT said it doesn't have record of ever approving the existing crosswalk and that it should be moved to the intersection with Monterey Lane, according to a letter discussed by Washington Township supervisors Wednesday night.


"You still can't see because there's a hill," said Washington Township Supervisor Chris Firme.

The intersection of Sabillasville Road and Summit Road does not meet warrants for a stop sign, PennDOT representatives wrote in a letter to the township.
